Looking forward to another year of apprenticeship at Misty Meadows is always exciting. Each year this program is more wonderful than the year before as the number of gifted herbal teachers grows. This year you will have an opportunity to learn from several outstanding herbalists, Flower Essence practitioners, Aromatherapists and Astrologers. As always, we spend countless hours in the Mother’s classroom, the best one of all.

Students will spend time in the garden, field and forest, classroom and kitchen. Students must be physically able to hike through wild areas of the forest, wetlands and hilly terrain, tolerate working in the hot sun and rain. Upon completion of this Level I program, you should be on your way to being able to provide herbal support for yourself and your family's basic health needs, preparing Earth-gift medicines, creating lovely gifts from the Earth that people will cherish, and working your wise-woman ways. Graduates of this program are also fully prepared for Advanced Herbal Studies.
Campers are welcome, and there are a number of excellent B&B's and a Holiday Inn within a short distance. Students are invited to participate in optional evening activities including campfire stories and giggles, a time for honoring your most sacred inborn woman’s healing spirit!
Along the way, you will work closely with the other participants in the program; sometimes all together, other times in smaller groups depending on the projects being done. In any case, it will surely be a time of great learning, teaching and sharing.
